United travel to New Meadow on Monday evening for a place in the next round, but Louis van Gaal’s side will know that it won’t be an easy tie.
The Red Devil’s put in a lacklustre performance in Denmark through the week as they were beaten by Midtjylland 2-1 in the first-leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.
Do or die against Shrewsbury
It could be said that United’s game against Shrewsbury will determine whether or not there will be a new manager coming through the Old Trafford doors in the coming weeks.
The pressure has well and truly mounted on van Gaal after some poor displays, and a defeat to the Shrews could be the final nail in his coffin.
Micky Mellon’s side will be no pushovers after they knocked out Championship side Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round on January 30.
West Ham will cause problems
The winner of Monday’s tie will host the Hammers, who produced a five-star performance on the road to Blackburn Rovers.
Dimitri Payet, who scored a brace in the game, shone once again as he guided West Ham to a 5-1 victory after they had fell behind in the game.
Whoever goes through, one thing is for sure, it won’t be an easy route to Wembley for the semi-finals, Slaven Bilic has his side playing free-flowing football.
Best of the rest
All ties will be played on the weekend commencing the 11th March 2016.
